Sprout It Out!

Turn seed, beans, grain & legumes into superfood for your bird

By Leslie Moran

Sprouts provide a sunstancial amount of nutrients for your pet birdsGail Worth, owner of Aves International in Southern California, has three of her staff members feed sprouts to 1,000 birds everyday. Worth believes that sprouts provide the best nutrition possible. She currently breeds Amazons, caiques, cockatoos, conures, Eclectus, lories, macaws, Pionus, Poicephalus, and African grey parrots.

Worth began feeding her birds a mixture of sprouts combined with a large variety of freshly chopped raw and cooked vegetables in 1998. Since this change, her birds are healthier and have fewer illnesses. She has noted less problems associated with egg production and has a higher quality of viable eggs. Her birds have a deeper saturation of feather color and maintain healthier weight levels with no obesity problems.

More and more aviculturists, avian rescue organizations and bird owners are recognizing the health benefits of growing and feeding sprouts. Healthy individuals naturally resist illness and disease. Feeding a sprouted-based diet provides superior nutrition. And by providing high-quality nutrition you begin laying the foundation for your bird’s good health and emotional well being for years to come. Sprouts are the most nutrient-dense food on the planet.
